Best Bang-For-Baht Breakfast

Monday, September 11th, 2017

Foodland Supermarket

Foodland is a superb value for money supermarket chain. There are branches in both Bangkok and Pattaya that are open 24 hours. They stock a wide range of products at reasonable prices, and they even have a pharmacy section.

Inside each Foodland Supermarket there is a Took Lae Dee Restaurant. The literal translation of Took Lae Dee is “cheap and good” which is a very accurate description. You know the food is both cheap and good, when you see so many locals eating at these Thai style diners.

I still can’t believe that Bangkok is such a huge city and yet, there is a definite lack of 24 hour restaurants. Thankfully, we’ve got Took Lae Dee!

The American Breakfast must be the best bang-for-baht you can possibly get anywhere in Thailand. It costs just 79 baht for 2 Eggs, Ham or Sausage, Toast, Butter, Preserves, Orange or Pineapple Juice, plus Tea or Coffee. If you hit it at Happy Hour (05:30-09:00) the American Breakfast is only 62 baht.

In Bangkok, I prefer the Took Lae Dee branches on Sukhumvit Soi 16 and in Patpong Soi 2, because both restaurants have tables to sit comfortably. However, the Took Lae Dee Restaurant on Sukhumvit soi 5 gets very crowded and there are no tables. Also, service can be very slow compared to the other branches, so patience is definitely needed sometimes.

As an added bonus, drinking water is free with refills as well. This will be like paradise to the Cheap Charlie Clan!

The menu has a selection of Thai, Asian and Western dishes, including the tasty Chinese Roast Pork. The Chicken Fried Rice is delicious and as cheap as chips. Took Lae Dee really takes some beating and being open 24 hours, this gives Foodland a great advantage over competitors.

Daves Raves – If you don’t like waiting, walk inside the supermarket and do your shopping. By the time you get back your food will be ready. You can eat in, or take it home along with your shopping. Hey, that’s two jobs done in one!

BarBar fetish club on Patpong 2  has its 10 year anniversary next Friday 25th starting 6pm and it should be a good  night.

I am told they will have the famous Sushi girl as well as  other live events and of course a full ensemble of hot mistresses and slaves.

I like to go to these parties because you always see a  few old hands and Bangkok legends like Dean Barrett about.

BarBar has had its up and downs over the years but right now it’s on an up, with some very saucy new girls.

I have always said fetish is the new tattoo, it started off being edgy and fringe and is gradually working its way into the mainstream.

I would expect to see this sort of stuff cropping up as themes for all sorts of things.  We’ve already had the book (50 shades of grey) now all we need is Angelina Jolie and Brad Pit to pop into a fetish club and that’ll be it, your gran will be going!

Anyway if you fancy something different for the weekend this is one to go for,
after all as they say ‘it’s only kinky the first time!’ 🙂

Wayward School Girls Night At Bar Fly

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

  Bar Fly Hosts School Girls Theme Night September 22

Bar Fly will host another theme night tonight, this time it’s ‘Wayward Schoolgirls.’ Ron the owner will be in attendance, as well as the usual line-up of attractive hostesses, plus a free feeding frenzy! Ron claims his beer is the coldest in Bangkok and I must agree the beers are definitely very cold! With some naughty schoolgirls thrown in it should be an enjoyable night.

I have often said that Soi 33 which has a lot of bars named after dead artists is dead itself.  But, that is not completely true.  The Office Bar is still popular with resident expats and Mojo’s has some HOT coyote dancers.  Bar Fly is a great place to chill out and Tenderloins seems to be as popular as ever. If you don’t like the mayhem and madness of lower Sukhumvit, up on Soi 33 is an alternative to the hustle and bustle. Bar Fly is located on Sukhumvit Soi 33 just past the Novotel, before Tenderloins Restaurant on the left-hand side.

Toby my webmaster is off to Cambodia again muttering something about Thailand 20 years ago. He promises to come back with a full update on the current nightlife scene, hence the delay in the post on Cambodia Nightlife.

Early closing is still in place at some clubs but I hear the new look Spicy is now rocking until 6:00am.

Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for more nightlife updates very soon…

Club Insomnia Bangkok Update

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

In my last post I did not include Club Insomnia on the list of after hours clubs.   The popular Club Insomnia (Sukhumvit Soi 12), which has a sister in Pattaya is now also open until 6:00 AM.  This is a very large club that is very busy on weekends. I was there last night and the music was heavy techo, (which personally doesn’t do much for me), but this is a club which pulls a younger more trendy crowd than say Climax Club does.  Quite a few young guys and plenty of stunning Thai girls (freelancers and after bar girls) about the place. Two very sexy dancers were shaking their stuff up on mini stages.  A very impressive sound system and laser show.  Like Climax Club you can smoke inside and they have  Shisha pipes for rent so the place can get very smokey.  Again to me this is a club you are either going to love or loathe, but as an after hours venue is has to be among the top of the list  of places to check out.

After Hours Clubs In Bangkok

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

Dusk Till Dawn

The after hours scene is constantly changing in Bangkok.  I remember a few years back when the Tunnel on Luang Suan was very popular, but that nightclub closed down.  One of the main places  for years now has been Spicy on Ron Mueang Soi 1 (off soi 5). It is a large venue that is open till around 6am.  Across the Street is the latest popular after hours nightspot Swing.  It opens late and carries on until midday!  So, it’s great for serious party animals. The downside is it’s small and can get packed. Furthermore, it can get too smokey.

Other popular late-night clubs include Climax Club on Sukhumvit Soi 11. The entrance is through the car park of the Ambassador Hotel. This club has live bands, which are pretty good. Climax is a popular place to party through the night. Open (usually) until 6am, it gets a number of Thai girls freelancing after the bars close at around 2am. Climax Club is one of those places that you will either love or loathe.

Popular Thailand nightlife columnist Stickman, has recently published a great piece on the on the difference between Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy (see here for the full article).  As readers will know I have been around Nana Plaza for over 12 years and therefore, I am somewhat biased towards that area.

Latest on Bangkok Music Station

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

It appears Tenderloins the long established great steak restaurant on Soi 33 will be moving from its current location and taking over the Music Station.  The manager told me they expect to move in the next month or so as soon as they have fitted out the new place.  We look forward to enjoying their infamous Aussie steaks at the new location.

Bangkok Fetish Club Party

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

Demonia Fetish Club celebrates its 8th Anniversary this coming weekend. I must say that 8 years in any business in Bangkok is an achievement. But to survive this many years in the niche market of fetish is something else.

Thai Coyote Dancers At Music Station In Bangkok

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

The introduction of Thai coyote dancers has made a refreshing change to the nightlife scene in Thailand.  Many of them are so cute and sexy, they could definitely drive a guy nuts!  As they don’t come with a public health warning, you newcomers need to be careful, whenever you encounter these hot babes.  Music Station located in Sukhumvit Soi 33 has introduced a bunch of coyote dancers to spice it up…

HOLLYWOOD INN HOTEL NANA PLAZA BANGKOK

PAVEMENT PUB PATROL IN BANGKOK’S CONCRETE JUNGLE

Nowadays, taking a late night stroll down lower Sukhumvit Road is very different to what it used to be years ago. A continuous row of makeshift mobile bars set up shop after midnight along lower Sukhumvit, right on the roadside. The pavement pubs stretch from Sukhumvit Soi 3/1, right along towards Sukhumvit Soi 19. Some of the pavement pubs sell booze from around midnight until cockcrow. Most of the pavement pubs charge 80 baht for a standard drink, which is reasonable enough.  However, this concrete jungle is a dodgy place, with various creatures of the night on the prowl.  (more…)

ALL QUIET ON THE EASTERN FRONT

Tough times are facing the nightlife scene in Thailand, as the majority of bars, go-go bars and nightclubs are feeling the pinch in one way or another. There are fewer foreign visitors frequenting Thailand’s nightlife scene than previous years and less bar girls in Bangkok’s multitude of bars. Out of Thailand’s main nightlife regions, sections of Pattaya, Koh Samui, Hua Hin and Chiang Mai appear to be hit hard by the downturn. (more…)
